Saturday 12 May
Of all the dwarf Siberian kale Barbara planted, only two tiny plants have yet come up. But Holt found some beautiful local kale at the farmer's market instead, so we decided to make simple and addictive kale crisps.
The bunch made three pansful, so we were able to snack on (and finish) the first pan while the others were crisping.
To go with what was left of the crisps, we once again made Madhur Jaffrey's recipe for salmon in Bengali mustard sauce.
And just to show that we have the world's strangest cat, Dora sniffed once at the salmon and passed by to nuzzle at all that kale.
